Moods of Morlich

By Irishkate  
A moody Loch Morlich - any suggestions how to remove the magenta
(I've tried desaturation of blues & magentas) caused by Kood filters.
I don't mine the purplish tones but it's not quite true to the more grey
sky which I saw! Thank you all for lovely comments for Lady of the Loch
with my daughter sitting on a rock. A few useful comments re a crop from right taken note of!
Special thanks to Billy(williamsloan),Patty and Netta for their much appreciated User Awards.

If you have PShop you can adjust the hues, Kate.

I think this picture is great as it is - lovely composition.

I rather like the purple hues it adds that little touch of jena sa qua. However if you do not want them simply remove them in Photoshop or Elements select the Layer Drop Down Box, click on Adjustment Layer then opt for Hue/Saturation. A simple tweaking should provide the required result. I hope this helps Kate.

Hi Kate - I don't know what post processing software you use, but I've done the following in Photoshop:

I added a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer, and under the Reds option, set the Hue to +11 and the Saturation to -100.
On the Magentas option, I set the Hue to -64 and the Saturation to -69.
Saturation on the Master option was set to -25.

I then painted on the layer mask with a large, soft (black) brush set to 25% opacity and painted over the foreground a bit and more so over the sandy road on the right of the image. I left the warmer tones in the road as I didn't want to desaturate them too much or change their colour.

There is still a very small amount of magenta hue in the fringes of the fluffy cloud on the right of the image, but taking that bit too far started to degrade the image too much, so I left it alone! Smile

There may well be easier or more straightforward ways of correcting that magenta caste, but that's what I've done in my mod.

Enough tips here to remove the cast Kate,
so just as well as I have no tips for you.
The good thing about rust is I do not
need the sky in the shot too !!

I also think that it is great as is, Kate; but I could eliminate best part of the unwanted hue using camera raw Grayscale button colour adjustments (mainly purple and magenta) without ticking the grayscale box and it was easy. Uploading it as a another modification.

looks fine to me, Kate.. didn't even notice magenta.. well, but what the fuss, Kate.. what's the problem if there's some.. after all, magenta to me would also reflect an element that brought one from an abyss to the surface.. so, it is all about gratefulness, too, perhaps? But I definitely sound stupid..

Use the RAW file; look at the white balance adjustments in the RAW converter; under the colour temperature, there a slider that goes from magenta on the right to green on the left; slide it away from magenta, towards green until you are happy with the appearance.

A lovely scene despite the magenta casting which is always a problem when using filters unless you have got loads of money and can afford Lee filters! You have had some good advice on here so I don't think you should have too much trouble in the futureWink

The magenta does little to detract from a very tranquil scene,for the purist,it might be a bit off putting,but to a layman like me i think it lovely.

HiTech filters are just as good as Lee ( i.e. they really are neutral ) but I don't think they cost quite so much.
People use expensive filters for a reason. As with everything, you get what you pay for.
But fixing it in Post costs even less.

Tanya nailed it for you.

Nice composition.
